We haven’t done a GUBlove on the blog in a minute. There are so many awesome things around the web and in life that make us happy. While I enjoy sharing links and photos on our social channels it’s important to me to share them here on the blog too! It’s almost the end of October so we will be entering the Holiday season officially. Here are a few of our finds and favorites for the month of October and even some goodness for holiday gifts!
Stickers make us happy
I recently updated my iPhone and entered the world of stickers!!! If you love the stickers on the FB app then this is 10xs better! The Tortilla Factory Sticker pack is by far one of my favorites because they have all of my fave Mexican things like a pink concha, elotes, vaporu, luchadores, taco trucks, and the list goes on. The Tortilla Factory was kind enough to send the hubs and me two codes to try out the sticker packs. Since I’ve been using them they’ve added more stickers and I hear they will continue to update and add stickers! It’s cool to get stickers that I can identify with I just wish my papuchoni had an iPhone cuz I’d like to send him so many of them. Here’s a convo with the hubs. Our style is to sprinkle stickers all over our messages and layer them on top of each other! Do you use stickers? What are some of your faves?

Crafts that don’t break the bank
I love crafts and while I don’t have as much time as before to sit and craft every day with the kids I do like to keep them entertained. They’re at the age where they can sit and do things on their own even basic crafts. They come into my office wanting to do something cool. I let them choose these craft kits that not only are affordable and easy but they keep them busy and help get our home holiday ready! I picked up a few kids from AC Moore and they were all just $1! If you’re looking for crafts for a party, favors, or even just to keep kids busy these have everything you need in the little pack! I love them and so do the kiddos!
Holiday Glam + Gifts
I have a few holiday parties and events to attend. I love getting glammed up and wearing some cute jewelry pieces. Our friends at JAC Boutiquee send us some samples and I gotta say I love that you can mix and match and not break the bank! They have a variety of Jewelry and accessories for women, children, and men. I’m looking to pick up a few things for my holiday shopping and thought you would too. They’ve extended a discount to our readers so shop with JAC Boutiquee and enter discount code GUBLIFE Follow them on IG + Facebook
Books Book Books
We just had the book fair at our school and picked up a few stacks of books for our home library. My kiddos are currently obsessed with Pusheen, Stampy, Dog Man, Fly Guy, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid (I just preordered this one) What are your kids or you reading?
And y’all know about my love for Mexican Food and my Amiga Leslie’s book, Taqueria Tacos. If you haven’t see the slow cooker carnitas I made you gotta take a look! I’m going to be gifting this book to a few friends. It’s a great stocking stuffer if you ask me!
We’ve also been binge-watching a lot of shows. Hubs is loving
Hubs is loving Westworld on HBO He’s also to blame for my love for Stranger Things on Netflix. If you haven’t watch, you must! Even the kiddos were into it. Warning: If your kiddos scare easy then you may have some funky nights lol Just sayin’!
I’ve been bingeing a few different shows too. On HBO I’ve been watching Insecure with Issa Rae. I’ve been a fan since The MisAdventures of Awkward Black Girl. I may have gone back to watch episodes over and over. Issa is the reason I started watching Youtube series like Roomie Lover Friends and Hello Cupid from Black&Sexy.TV
On Netflix I’ve binged The Get Down, Luke Cage, and Haters Back Off with Miranda Sings! I like a variety of shows and these kept me entertained!
What are y’all watching? Any recommendations? Let us know!
